In a world dominated by Multicam, tans, and digital camo, is there still a place for Woodland?

The vast majority of gear excludes this camo. Is it not "tactical" looking enough, or has it become less effective than newer patterns?

It's as effective as it's always been. But there are both more and better patterns available now. With everything on the market it's much easier to find something that matches where you live than in the Woodland/Desert days.
And earth tones like coyote or ranger green are more universal.

As a person who loves woodland so fucking much I shelled out for an LBE just to rock it, my criticism is that it's too dark. The biggest mistake most people make with camo and ghilles too(other than too much burlap) is that they make them too dark, and you stand out in the field. I really don't like multicam but it works so damn well it's disgusting. MARPAT too.

HET.
We're talking about a green forest right? Choices are limited. Now a brown forest in wintertime or late fall you have thousands of choices,

green forest? Just go with my three pics above.

Woodland camo doesn't really work, it's too dark and just stands out anywhere.

(Damn I forgot this Danish camo, take a look)
Also the Canadian camo Cadpat should be great in green forest.
>>
I fucking love M81, but I also love the 80s so I might be a bit biased. It's good enough, but obviously not the best camo. It's much better when dirty or a little faded as it loses the darkness that gives it away. Overall I prefer DPM or AOR2, and MARPAT depending on the conditions.

Multicam and Pencott Badlands look amazing, and there's a few special snowflake ones that seem good.

Growing up I was exposed to the Army in M81 my entire childhood.

It's actually so ingrained into me that even now that I am in the Army, when I picture a US Army Soldier in my mind I don't picture the uniform and equipment I wear and use, instead I still picture the uniform my dad wore, M81 BDUs and ALICE equipment.

We are not sure what camo to use in our group yet. We all have a bunch of Flecktarn pices but we dont want to get mistaken for Bundeswehr when SHTF so we cant go full Flecktarn.
Location is south-western germany.
I think DMP would be a good idea since it looks like it matches good with our flora and its easy to get cheap surplus gear.
Is there anything that speaks against it?
Also how does M90 perform? i know the surplus stuff is more expensive and less common but HNNGG its sexy af desu.

It's a remapped climate map, not a real camouflage map. Down in Tucson I'd say MTP is pretty good, there's a ton of foliage and the soil is roughly the same color as the brown shades.

Also as an aside, the sage scrublands of eastern Washington and Idaho are the only place UCP is an appropriate or useful camouflage.

>is there still a place for Woodland?
Yes. All patterns have somewhere that they will work. However, the useful space for most "woodland, jungle, or forest" patterns developed in the 20th century is relatively narrow. To some extent, this is because these patterns were developed for use in what are commonly considered environmental extremes or monoclimates (e.g. dense jungle or rainforests). These patterns are heavily saturated relative to the majority of environments that people actually live in. Modern patterns cove a much larger battlespace than Tiger Stripe, M81, Flecktarn, etc.

>has it become less effective than newer patterns?
Essentially yes. Most modern patterns use colors that are not as heavily saturated and omit black as a color. Even modern dense forest patterns such as MultiCam Tropic or A-TACS FG stand out less in jungles or rainforests.
>>
>>28867961
